Simpler Times

Simpler Times.

The Saturday Evening Post cover speaks speaks about simpler times. There is no better time than this moment. The times were simpler and I think the key to the link is the quote under the image. Our inner child is our muse.

When we live in the moment with curiosity and reverence, our inner child sees the world with wonder and awe. The other night we laughed as our grandson played with the little boy in the mirror for 5 minutes. They had a wonderful time and so did we. It reminded the world is always ready to be explored anew when we adopt the beginner’s mind.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
